Has anyone seen the Airport trading cards that can be found at some US airports? I found some today at Lambert St. Louis, and I grabbed a few - I can't upload a picture at the moment (on the move!) but there is info about the airport on the back. Might be worth looking out for them the next time you pass through an airport - I found them on the information desk...
Au Res.,
Paul

Yes, there was a note about these cards in NSU last year. I have six different just from my business travel last year and so far this year.

I have one of the Lambert cards too.

In my experience the cards haven't been sitting on the information booth counter. I've had to ask for them, but even then, some airport employees are unaware of the program.

San Jose airport ran out of cards last year, or at least no one seems to know about them now.

I flew into Orlando in March and they were running out of cards, but then I was there again last week, and more cards were available but they were double-wrapped in rubber bands. At that point, Todd Jordan would say "ouch."

I have been working on these cards. Does anyone have some for trade. I need cards from about 10 airports.

I flew into Tampa last week and went to an information desk and asked about the cards. The agent opened a drawer and gave me the 2015 and 2018 card. There's a desk downstairs in the baggage claim area but it was unmanned. There's another one two floors up about halfway from the where the shuttle leaves you off. I didn't see another one but didn't look because my ride was on the way.

I see a whole new set was released last year. I couldn't find an information desk while in Houston's airport last week and nobody seems to know about the cards in San Jose's airport.

After getting a card in 2014 or early 2015, I've asked for one on every trip for a few years now but no one at the desk has known about them. I flew home last week and decided to try again thinking I might get the 2018 card. This agent did know about the cards and gave me one but it was a 2014 (did they have them all this time?) which is fine because I can trade it.
